Lauren Behrman, Ph.D., says that the epidemic of divorce offers significant opportunities for psychologists looking to expand their practices. In addition to traditional roles of custody evaluator and therapist, new roles have evolved in the last two decades including parent coordinator, mediator, co-parent counselor and collaborative divorce neutral coach, divorce coach and child specialist.

These roles have emerged out of the recognition that adversarial processes inflame conflict, negatively impact children and damage parents’ ability to co-parent children post divorce. Additionally, many of these roles typically do not involve court appearances by the psychologist.
